Has Your Season Started?

I have been seeing race reports already and I was wondering if the season has already started in your particular state.

Here in Oregon the first race isn't until Feb. 19.

Week from today is start of the season for me. Way too early IMO, I'm still not where I want to be because of the Holidays.

Yeah.. That's the hard part, I have one more block before I do any real high intensity work (aside from racing on the weekend). But I have goals that require some patience.

Forgot to post about this but good luck to everyone this year. I know that we poke and jab at each other a lot but we all share a love for the sport and I just wanted to wish everyone the best of luck - train well, eat lots, ride fast.

he's secretly wishing to make us fat

Thanks rkwaki, and best of wishes to everyone. I hope everyone gets into lot of good breaks and have none of the bad breaks (teeth, bones, frames, what have you).

I could race as early as this weekend, but I'm holding off until Boulevard on Feb 5th. If it's raining at Boulevard I'll wait until the next day at Red Trolley.

I figure if I fatten you all up it will give me a shot
I am also currently trying to get everyone locally to go to a couple of races out of state so I can do the local ones - then it will be rkwaki FTW

mcjimbosandwich lets take a looke at that:
Breaks since August:
Teeth - one (molar - removed)
Bones - one (wrist - surgery)
Frames - one (BMC RIP)
Looks like I got rid of the bad breaks so that must mean good breaks are coming
